My wife and kids are home with a "snow" day today. ❄️ I am at work. There is no snow, yet. Only cold, cold rain. (And for those not in South Carolina, threat of snow is typically enough to cancel everything.)

I've been using 1.1 mm calligraphy nibs on my Lamy and TWSBI fountain pens for a while. Switched one of the Safaris back to a EF nib. I still like the calligraphy nibs, but I forgot how much I like the extra fine nib, too.

It's been a long and challenging week. Glad Friday is finally here. Time to knock a bunch of stuff off the to do list and go into the long weekend on a positive note.

Today is Micro Monday on the Micro.Blog side of the internet. I enjoy following everyone's favorite random Star Trek podcaster, Scott McNulty, a.k.a. @blankbaby, who's recently made the trek over to this alternate social media universe.

I used artboards in Photoshop today for the first time. Interesting. I probably won't need them much with the way I work, but I can see how they could be very useful.
